I am Thine, O Lord, I have heard Thy voice

I am Thine, O Lord, I have heard Thy voice,
  And it told Thy love to me;
But I long to rise in the arms of faith,
  And be closer drawn to Thee.
  Draw me nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,
  To the cross where Thou hast died;
Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,
    To Thy precious, bleeding side.
Consecrate me now to Thy service, Lord,
  By the pow'r of grace divine;
Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope,
  And my will be lost in Thine.
O the pure delight of a single hour
  That before Thy throne I spend,
When I kneel in prayer, and with Thee, my God,
  I commune as friend with friend!
There are depths of love that I yet may know
  Ere Thee face to face I see;
There are heights of joy that I yet may reach
  Ere I rest in peace with Thee.

I used to sing this hymn as child when I went to church with my grandmother. Recently I visited my aged mother and we sang it together. It is one of Mummy's favourite hymns. It expresses so much of my desire towards Almighty God. This morning I kept singing it over and over. Thank You Father for the joy of communing with You.

It is sad that a lot of churches have taken this inspirational hymn out of the worship service along with many others. The worship songs today don't have Christ or anything scriptural mentioned in them.

This has been my prayer that I be drawn nearer to God. The devil tries to pull me away but I want to be nearer to God. So yes draw me nearer, nearer blessed Lord to Thy precious bleeding side.

The Holy Spirit put this song in my heart this morning and it brought so much joy, peace, hope to me.It came at a time when I was lead to set myself apart for a time for the Lord. The lyrics of the song is a commitment to God that I belong to Him and I am ready to do His will. God help us who belong to him in Jesus Name. Amen.
